Brands vary for this deal as well but I figure whatever the brand they will be basic generics. I personally would go for the 4gb and grab a few. The speeds may leave a bit to be desired but a nice back-up to have for the price

    Just went to harvies in QV melbourne and they had them for $16. Annoyed because i wanted one and of course they had no catalogues in the store so i could not argue with them...

    That happen to me once with a GPS so I politely suggested that they look up the catalogue price on there system.

    If you aren't far from them I would take a print out and get a refund, its not right, they are overcharging people.

    No cheap keys at Harveys today in the Queen street mall in Brisbane. $9.95 for a 1 gig. I needed a small key for a dos based project larger keys always fail, glad work paid for it I felt dirty paying $10 for 1 gig when I can get 8 gig for $8....

    The program we use formats the key at fat16, as this has limits of drive size (2gb) it isn't sure what to do with such a large key eg 8 gig. So it always fails. Even if you create a smaller partition on the key, the application that we use (inhouse made) creates the information that's placed on the key formats it first, also recreates the partition, at this point it dies. Its an old app that's been modified badly to work with current technology.

    It use to write to floppy disks. If you use a key 2 gig or smaller it works like a dream.

    :) fat16 and floppies .... Didn't think they existed anymore. That must be a legacy app from the early 90's?
